This hat is truly a pleasure to knit. The pattern is clearly written and simple to knit. I learned how to do jogless stripes which was really easy and very rewarding. The fun of watching the Amazing stripes change was motivating and kept the hats interesting.
This photo shows the progression of the yarn color changes. The hat on the left is the first hat and the hat on the right is the third hat.
I highly recommend this pattern. I never make three (or four) of anything. These were so relaxing to make and used up very little yarn.
And, of course, I have three boys and three hats so they had to model them for me.

So fun! Now I'm pondering a nice Turn A Square sweater. Can't you see these stripes on a simple raglan pullover?
